I just received my copy of Charmed Knits, and this Rowanspun Aran is calling out to be a Hermione Hat and mittens I think. Its perfect! And shouldn't my first attempt at lace involve alpaca?! Yummy!! Thank you thank you thank you Curly Top!! You have been a fabulous pal!!!
The day before, when things started going downhill, and Rowan and I had a horrible day, Rowan just kept saying, "Don't worry. Your package from Disco is at home." After three months of spoiling, Disco has become a dear friend and her final package was so thoughtful!
That card on top immediately called out to me to be framed and go in my office (I've been wanting to get some new art work in there and that is just perfect!). Below, a whole bunch of goodies and favorites of disco's...look at those cute puppy thank you cards!! And the Pina Colada Coconut Chocolate (oh yeah!).
And finally, a yum-O (as Disco would say) color of Amy Butler fabric, that pretty card again, and gorgeous Noro Lily Yarn (I haven't seen this before!!).
Look at that pretty blue. 30% silk and 70% cotton, perfect for summer. I'm sooooo thinking Dreamswatch! Could be because Disco made one, and Jessica made one, and Pashy is working on one, and Pashy and I actually bought some yarn to make one, but this is soooo pretty I could make another!!! Thank you so much Disco!! Hugs to you!!
And, in today's "Knitting with Not As Many tears" update I headed down to Purlescence Yarns. Just because after the week I had, well, I figured a Blue Moon something would be okay. And, let's just say, God was looking out for me. Seriously :) When I got there, the wonderful ladies were unpacking this. And they just made me smile in lots of ways.
Here's to a much better weekend, filled with lots of Knitting without Tears.
